Description: 3 x 5.5-inch Envelope addressed in his hand to "Dr. John William Draper - M. D. & L.L.D. - New York City," affixed with two Scott #64 3c Washington stamps (variety unknown), postmarked Mount Vernon, May 3, 1866. Draper (1811 - 1882) was an American scientist, chemist, historian, and pioneer photographer who is credited with taking the first image of a female's face in 1839. He is also the founder of NYU Medical School. Draper has docketed the envelope "Gen. Morgan." A wonderful association piece considering the fact that Draper is rare in any form. Fine condition with clear postal makings and cancellation.

Comments: Union General, politician, and diplomat.
